With Hearts on Fire is an inspiring series of reflections on Jesus and his proclamation of the reign of God. It looks at Christ's vision of that reign and what we can do to bring his vision to reality in our lives and in our world. Using the weekday readings of the Roman Catholic lectionary as the framework, Joseph Donders helps individuals and small Christian communities examine how they live the reign of God today.
Here is a wonderful companion for homilists and those who participate in daily Mass, as well as those who wish to meditate on the Lectionary readings for spiritual enrichment. And, it is also a wonderful resource for RCIA candidates and catechumens.
Joseph G. Donders, M.Afr., is Professor of Mission and Cross-cultural Studies at Washington Theological Union, Washingwn, D.C. He has written numerous booklets of scriptural reflections for the seasons of Advent and Lent published by Twenty-Third Publications.
